Ford F-150 Lightning Pros and Cons

  • Frunk is large and very practical

  • Full-sized truck bed

  • Amazing acceleration and torque

  • Bluecruise is relatively reliable and the hardware is there for future self-driving improvements

  • Quiet and smooth drive

The Bluecruise self-driving feature adds an extra layer of convenience, and the leather-appointed seats with heating options make for a comfortable ride.
